SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Data Connection Limited (DCL), the world's leading provider of communications protocol software, announced today at the Spring VON 2005 show (Booth #829) that Tellme Networks, Inc.TM has incorporated Data Connection’s DC-SIP software solution into their network, enabling over 1 billion directory assistance calls using VoIP this year. Tellme is using Data Connection’s SIP software to connect directory assistance calls to Tellme’s data centers nationwide.

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is an industry standard signaling protocol for controlling multi-media sessions, such as voice, video, and messaging, across packet based networks. SIP is an essential part of the family of Voice over IP (VoIP) technologies that is powering innovative companies, such as Tellme, to offer more services and flexibility to their customers but at significantly less cost and complexity than that of traditional voice networks.

“Directory assistance will drive millions of SIP sessions per day to the Tellme data centers, which essentially makes our network one of the largest SIP endpoints in the world,” said Troy Chevalier, Tellme’s VP of Platform Engineering.

“Tellme handles a third of all the directory assistance calls made in the United States. The use of our DC-SIP solution in the Tellme application is a true testimony to the scale and high reliability of our products,” said Phil McConnell, Data Connection’s CEO.
